Murdoch says despite being interactive, the pajamas are comfortable.

I think there's an extra word in this sentence that doesn't really need to be there...

"Some people think there might be wires that are hidden in the pajamas, but that's not the case at all," Murdoch says.

Wait... what? Really? "Some people" shouldn't be breeding then, but if they need this product it's apparently too late for that

I think they are kind of cute. My kids would get a kick out of it. And maybe it would help with them learning to read.

Is it one story per QR code or does the website randomize the story so as to not get stale?

hmm...

do i ignore this thread because it deals with babies, or do i feign ignorance about what yoga pants might look like?

I need a smartphone app that counts the number of expletives I let loose in a day and suggest what and how much to drink that night to deal with the level of frustration and anger.

Does a QR code on Yoga pants include the caption "Like this butt on Facebook"?

At first I was like "Rawr, read a got-danged book!"

And then, it appealed to my gadgety-loving side and it seems pretty cute and fun.  I know my story-loving, tablet-loving four-year-old would get a kick out of it.

How is the QR code helpful in that case?  Isn't it just a shiattier version of having a bookmark on your phone that brings up storytime?

As long as you don't express a desire to see babies in yoga pants...

Wholly, utterly pointless -- it reminds me of the "buildings that turn into robots" idea that Tom Hanks demolishes in Big.  An idea with grounding neither in the life of a child nor the life of a parent nor the act of reading itself.

a.  Kids DO NOT CARE how the story ends up in the parent's hands -- the most vital, precious part is that their parent is spending time with them.

b.  Parents can far more easily pick from a menu rather than aim at an obscured-by-chocolate-ice-cream spot on pajamas.  Again.

c.  Any fleeting novelty will wear off for the child WELL before the pajamas wear out.  Oh great, Daddy is going to take a picture of my right elbow to read me my story.  Again.  "Oh Mommy, point your phone at THIS story code!  Please?"  Riveting.

d.  They don't even let you program your own (possibly pre-purchased) stories and books?!  You've only got their own selection of measly public domain ancient stories that your kids want no part of?

e.  Rather than use the gigantic wealth of online e-books and audio books AND interactive children's books from multiple sources (Nook ones are pretty cool), they reinvent the wheel and hire their own actors to do it all over again?

f. It apparently uses custom codes rather than standard QR codes, for no apparent reason other than vendor lock-in.

It seems more like a satire of a bad product than it does anything else.  Maybe a hoax?

That will be great for parents who can't read.

Probably exactly what it is. I bet the app comes with a bunch of public-domain stories, and there will be an in-app-purchase to allow you to hear more, with the purchase of a different pair of pajamas.

Buddy, look around.  This discussion has already moved on to the next logical step in the evolution of this thread and the focus is on what yoga pants might be better suited with QR codes on them.  At least I  think that's what happened...

Ironically, real QR codes could make for much better looking pajamas, as they have much more subtle patterns and could provide a quilt effect.

Everything else aside, those pajamas are ugly.  Not colorful or wild enough to be fun for children, and not clean or stylish enough to appeal to adults.

Well, except for the two guys above who liked them. ;)

So am I the only one that thinks this is really stupid? Scanning your child's pajamas to download a bedtime story?

If you absolutely must have a fancy gadget to read stories from I hear they make things called eBook Readers that hold thousands and thousands of books, without the need to scan anyone's pajamas.

Whenever I see "yoga pants" in a thread headline, it's a Pavlovian response to click it.  Thank you for reinforcing that response.

Women with small breasts should be mocked until they get boob jobs, right?

But that stupidity aside, give yourself a little GIS browsing of that pose: it hides the breasts behind the shoulder and arms if they are even slightly forward, while minimizing the booty.
